Re: Re: Developments in Cork
It’s so unfortunate that the city will be transformed into one continuous yet preforated shopping complex of such bad quality. Why does it all have to emulate Dublin, and Jervis St. so blatantly. WIth all these pieces and the incredibly poorly designed Acadamy St development I think Cork is really going to start to look like some Brtitish High-St suburb. it’s so unfortunate that builiding that should have been listed (especially on Academy St.) can be razed to give way for this awful crap, perpetuauted by developers who are under public investigation by planning tribunals among others.
:oDonâ€™t forget that this destruction of our city and listed / heritage buildings is being led from the top as City Manager Joe Gavin sought (and got) approval recently from his sheep,(Councillors) to remove a structure from the Record of Protected Structures proposed list to facilitate a developer.
The Manager and his staff are also continuing to turn a blind eye to the ongoing dilapidation of the Bonded Warehousing on Custom House Quay.
